We came to Memphis from St. Louis to pick up my daughter from college. We wanted to take her and her friends out to a nice dinner and she picked Paulettes. I had seen the reviews on trip advisor about this establishment and told her but she said it was her favorite place in Memphis. A petite filet mignon with mashed potatoes is priced at $28 but on Friday it is their special at $20. All of us ordered the entree to be cooked medium and all of us received a well done filets. My son ordered the lobster tail special and it was one lobster tail for $28. The cost versus the portion size is unconscionable. Mashed potatoes and a small, small portion of beef ....... anyway I told my daughter's friends that when they come to St. Louis I am preparing prime grade prime rib (which by the way cost $10 a lb here), to make up for the dismal meal that they were served in Memphis. My son was starving and we had to stop at a fast food restaurant to satiate his appetitie after the lobster tail .

I love walking into Paulette's little white house with roses flowing over the picket fence...wood beams and white table cloths. Great for Sunday brunch or easy romantic dinner. I love the popovers with strawberry butter...a bel-air salad with goat cheese balls (on longer posted on the menu but, they will make it for you if you ask nicely), filet Paulette, some nice wine and of course the huge K-pie! and coffee.
Not where I go when looking for daring or exciting options but, always a place that I truly enjoy and would miss terribly if she were gone:)
